Description

This is the first point from which you can get a clear view of the distant mountains beyond as well as the South Toe Valley below. It is the perfect place to catch the sunrise if you get an early enough start at the trailhead; takes just over an hour to get to this point from the parking area at the base.

Short Run: About 1.8-miles from the trailhead parking area along the Woody Ridge Trail (177).

Minor Issues
Update
Muddy, Fallen Trees - Pretty consistent mud throughout, just below ankle deep in some spots. Minor trail washout due to rainfall on greater elevation change. Poor footing on steep climbs, especially on rocks and roots, due to recent rainfall.

Muddy - It rained 8/5 while I was there. The trail was very muddy in places. One small part was a giant puddle. Still very passable
